Thai tea and kaya jam

After a recent South East Asian trip, I am looking to recreate some of the lovely meals I had. Does anyone know where I can get thai tea necessary for making thai iced tea? Also has anyone spotted Kaya being sold? Would Ranch 99 be the place to find these goodies?
Funny, I had my mom bring back some Killiney brand kaya from Singapore earlier this year, and now I've just discovered similar stuff at Ranch 99. Even Berkeley Bowl sells it too, in their asian foods aisle.
To follow-up, Ranch 99 has two brands of kaya (one in a glass jar in two different sizes, one in a can). Both have food coloring. Instead, I just bought kaya spread from Marina Market in Foster City. In addition to the same glass-jar kind as Ranch 99, they had the "Glory" brand "Hainanese Kaya With Honey" made in Singapore. This doesn't have food coloring or preservatives.
I have yet to try it.
